First Post!

Hello everyone and welcome to my very first blog on the intertubes. Considering how engulfed in the internet I am, it is really quite amazing that I was able to hold out on getting a blog for this long already. However, the day has finally come where I have succumbed to the temptation and set up camp in my very own little corner of the web.

As my first act as a member of the blogosphere, I would like to say a little bit about myself and this blog. First of all, my name is Ben and I am a computer engineering student. I am an avid computer user with many hours of Linux, OS X, and Windows use under my belt. Although this blog is but a newborn with no knowledge of its future, I will likely be using this as a place to post interesting things I stumble upon, post updates on various projects I am working on, rant and rave about things that are going on in my life, and, in general, provide a bit of a window into the mind of a computer geek.

Again, like a newborn, this blog is very young and is sure to have some growing pains as it matures into the website it is destined to become. Like they say, it takes a village to raise a child, and the internet is likely one of the most frightening and yet one of the most beautiful villages that any young blog could grow up in. Please join me on this magical journey that surely awaits. Comments are always welcome and are sure to help change this blog, and perhaps even myself, into things which can only be imagined
